... oops, nearly forgot ...

.... oops, nearly forgot ... one other potentially, very significant decision that the Administration seem to be almost stumbling towards is a commitment to raid at least £10.5million from the Capital Budget for 2008-2011.

Do have a look at paragraphs 4.2 and 5.2 in the "National and Regional Sports Facilities - Progress Report" ... I read them as basically indicating that if no land-sale goes ahead then the money has to come from somewhere else in the existing Capital Budget?

In essence that means no money for any other capital projects - now, that's what I call a pretty serious pre-emption of the overall Capital Budget :-(

... or are they thinking of selling-off some other assets - surely they're not about to do exactly what we suggested straight after the election?

If they do, just what has all the budgetary panic of the last 6-months been for??

My suggestion to save lots of money would be to sell all but one colour of waste collection bin.

Give us back two waste collections a week.

Send all our waste to -

and now here is how it works

Many thanks for the comment (and links) - not my area of expertise but I will pass on these details to colleagues who specialise in this area.
